Workers Educational Association
Established in 1903, the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) is a charity dedicated to bringing high-quality, professional education into the heart of communities. With the assist of nearly 3,000 volunteers, 2,000 tutors and over 10,000 members, we deliver friendly, accessible and enjoyable courses for adults from all walks of life. Assessed ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2018, we have classes in almost every area of England and Scotland. You do not need any previous information or qualifications to attend most of our courses, only a willingness to share with others your curiosity, opinions, and experience. We also have a special mission to raise aspirations and improve educational occasions for the most disadvantaged. This includes providing basic maths, English and IT abilities for employment; courses to develop health and wellbeing; creative programmes to broaden horizons, and community engagement activities that encourage active citizenship.
